Researchers at EMSL study the components and inhabitants of soil communities, gathering data to better understand and model how factors – agriculture, climate changes, ecosystems activities – change soil chemistry.
Scientists used the Titan supercomputer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory to create a 100-million-atom simulation of a chromatophore, providing an unprecedented look at how bacteria harvest light for food.
Two Brookhaven researchers developed theoretical model to explain the origins of self-replicating molecules.
08.03.15 Researchers are using remote-controlled unmanned aerial systems in Oliktok Point, Alaska, this summer to collect hard-to-gather data with the ultimate aim of improving climate models.
08.03.15 Result opens new doors in thin-film research and provides early confirmation of the expected impact of the National Synchrotron Light Source II.
07.31.15 Physicists discovered one type of Higgs boson in 2012. Now they’re looking for more. There could be more types, since two primary theories – compositeness and Supersymmetry - predict multiple Higgs particles.
